    He'll probably be on the bench for this match. He did alright as an impact player most times. 80mins, horrible.

    I guess sOme didn't see it but still quite early up here. Lara pit on the Matty johns Monday night show crossed to Matai explaining how good a centre TRex would make in the absence of Inu. I saw a little skivvy smile that warmed the cockles of my heart.

      Forget positions. Trex is doing his best imitating a first grader!

        Steve has also put his hand up to play for Samoa in the WC ayt the end of the year, so he's not eligible for NZ anymore... not that they pick him!

          Wonderful piece in the Manly Daily today on Matai and his expectation of flattening T-ex :p


          Sea Eagles back Steve Matai is ready to be targeted by his good mate Tony ‘ ‘ T- Rex’’ Williams in Friday’s showdown with the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.

          Steve Matai gets TLC from team-mate George Rose at training yesterday ahead of his clash with Tony Williams.

          ‘‘I wouldn’t be surprised if he played centre this week either – just to mark up against me,’’ Matai said yesterday.
          ‘‘I think he wants to bump me off a few times . . . I better prepare these shoulders.’’

          Williams’ i mposing presence against his old club adds more spice to the clash between the fierce NRL rivals.
          And coming up against Williams for the first time means something special for the abrasive three-quarter Matai.

          ‘‘We just grew to be good mates when he was here,’’ Matai said.
          ‘‘ It wasn’t hard with ‘Rexxy’, he was a pretty chilled bloke.’’
          Williams sent Matai a text following the Sea Eagles’ victory over the Tigers, saying it was good and that some of the Manly boys should maybe have a rest this week.

          ‘‘I might send him a few messages during the week and see how he is travelling, see how his team is going, see what the game plan is,’’ Matai said.

          He was one person Williams spoke to about his decision to leave Manly to join Des Hasler at Belmore.
          ‘‘It was a tough decision for him,’’ Matai said.
          ‘‘At the end of the day it was a decision made for his family and that is the best way to do it really.’’

          T-Rex is yet to hit his straps at the Bulldogs and Matai says it is only a matter of time. He just hopes it doesn’t happen this Friday.
          ‘‘I’ve spoken to him a few times, he said he is enjoying the training, he is enjoying the players there,’’ Matai said.
          ‘‘I think it is hard for him to find his role there at the moment. It’s always going to be hard going to a new club.
          ‘‘You are not quite sure how they run their offence, how their players play.
          ‘‘It’s always going to take a little while to fit in and play some good footy at a new club.
          ‘‘We all know what he is capable of.’’

          2013 is Williams best run since 2011. Last year he was injured or suspended for about 14/15 weeks then played injured after that. No offense trex but I think a two or three big hits and he will be out injured again or in reserves. He hates being sat on his arse and goes hiding when he is.
